Out of curiosity, why aren't you using traits?

Would you be interested in learning more about traits or do you think they're just another silly buzzword? If you are interested in traits, what would it take to get you to start using them?
One thing I've noticed about traits is that most discussions of traits seem to revolve around examples which don't really match up with what people need in the real world. This, curiously, is the same problem that many beginning OO examples have. As a result, people learn about OO and often say "why bother?" I think the same problem affects traits despite how useful they are.
